“Your parents are lucky to have a responsible son like you”, the old man said.
“Thank you sir”, replied Ojo.
They were both sitting on a sofa in a large and well-furnished sitting room. The old man is his landlord and Ojo was at his house to pay him a visit like he always does every Sunday. Ojo was renting the bungalow behind the old man’s duplex. The old man took a sip from the goblet he was holding and he continued speaking.
“A lot of young and handsome bachelors like you living in a house alone are chronic womanizers. They bring different women home with them everyday.”
Ojo didn’t reply because he didn’t know what to say, he just smiled at the old man.
“I pray that the Lord will give you a good wife when you finally decide to get married.”
“Amen”, answered Ojo.
When the old man stood up and went to the toilet, Ojo brought out a picture of a pretty girl from his wallet and stared at it. It was the picture of the only girl he ever loved. She died about three years ago and he’s been single since then.
